Only the group news.group will be checked...
> killthreshold 10
As far as I understand the documentation, 'killthreshold' is only
allowed outside a group definition...
> 10 pattern from "Joe User"
> 10 pattern from "Jay Random"
> 10 pattern from "Large Marge"
With that specification you will lift all articles containing e.g. "Joe
User" (literally!!!) in their From:-header above the killthreshold.
This means, that all article _not_ containing one of your search
strings will be killed.
I assume you want it the other way round:
-1 from Joe User
-1 from Jay Random
-1 from Large Marge
That should do it. You should also check the online-FAQ. Section 12.5
contains something about FAQ/Operation/Scoring. That hopefully will give
you some further hints.
PS: I've reread the documentation on scoring and found it to be ugly.
